Interview with Karen Shayne and Judy Pearson: Founders of the National Women’s Survivors Convention

It was such a blessing to be a part of The National Women’s Survivors Convention last year, and in honor of the Convention starting tomorrow, July 31 – August 1, 2014, in Nashville, TN we want to dedicate our podcast today to our interview with the founders, Judy and Karen. These fun ladies really believe that as survivors we owe a little payback to humanity. We encourage anyone to join in on the fun. You will not want to miss out on three jam packed days with stories of empowerment, education, and connecting with others whose lives have been touched by cancer. You just gotta be there!!

Raquel Corey: “Being There” & Suffering

In this interview, I (Sharon) interview my dear friend Raquel Corey. Being kind, encouraging and affirming has always been part of Miss Raquel’s fundamental makeup. This natural talent for making those around her feel important and supported was a perfect fit as early adulthood lead her into the roles of wife to a music minister, mother and youth mentor. Years into the evolution of their lovely family tragedy hit hard, twice. As those around her reacted and she grieved, greater wisdom came to her. Now through the teachings of her mother, her own natural leanings and life experience, Raquel helps us understand how to help others in their time of need. I believe we can all find something helpful in her message & I hope that proves true for you. Thanks Rock!


As most of us know, sleep plays a vital role in maintaining our health and overall well-being. It is while we rest and sleep that our bodies and brain “repair” themselves from the physical and mental stresses that are placed upon them throughout the day. Most valued sources report that getting enough quality sleep can help promote mental health, physical health, and overall quality of life. But in this crazy, busy world that we live in how do we accomplish this?

In this podcast, Sharon and Lucy will discuss the importance of sleep, especially when our bodies are going through difficult times such as cancer treatment and its recovery. Listen in to learn ways in which a better night’s sleep can be achieved so that our bodies can repair and regroup!
